Pecan Pie Cookies




If you like Pecan Pie you are going to LOVE these cookies! Seriously these cookies are so good they might even be better than pie. What am I saying? They really are better than the real deal. Unless of course you are my husband. He doesn't believe nuts should be in anything so that makes more for the rest of us. Yippee! You are going to love how they just melt in your mouth.

For Cookies:
1 Cup firmly packed Brown Sugar
3/4 Cup Softened Butter
1 Egg
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder

For Filling:
1 Cup Chopped Nuts
1/2 cup firmly packed Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1 tsp. Vanilla

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Combine all cookie ingredients except flour and baking powder in a large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Reduce speed to low and add flour and baking powder. Mix well.

Shape dough into 1 1/4 inch balls. Place two inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Make indentation in each cookie with thumb; rotate thumb to hollow out slightly. Combine filling ingredients in a small bowl; fill each cookie with 1 rounded teaspoon filling. Bake 8-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets.

I can't remember where I found this recipe. I do remember that it was originally from Land O'Lakes.
